Introduction to the comic series:
The Offspring is a sci-fi, horror, drama, time-travel epic that circles around three friends who have spent their lives trying to get over the hardships and disappointments of the past. As Sara, Will and Vince grow closer, the evils around them grow more powerful, compelling them to overcome their own bad choices and do what they can to defeat the forces working to destroy all mankind.
Official Synopsis of Issue #2:
Come as you are
Continuing the search for the missing children, Sara, Will and Vince are unaware that the blood thirsty cult has begun their ritual sacrifice. The three friends must save the children before sundown, while keeping their own demons in check.
Spoiler Free Review of Issue #2:
The second issue of The Offspring once again emphasizes that “Correct Handed Productions” has made a horror comic book series that has the potential of becoming a successful superhero tale (without all the exaggeration and costumes) featuring a trio fighting the paranormal and helping the common folks through their “special abilities”. Second Issue is created, written, penciled, inked, colored, and lettered by David Whalen only.
We start this issue with the scene that ended the last issue of this comic, and while reading the first one will improve your understanding of what’s happening, the art and dialogues help us to know that there’s some kind of ritual going on. That’s how good the art direction is.
Since the comic is for 16 and above, the blood and violence is plenty but never direct or excess. There’s implied nudity and silhouette but no direct nudity, which is artistic and better than getting the comic banned in some regions or making it too vulgar to read for some.
The first issue gave us hints of the special abilities of the leading trio but this one actually has them declare it, and use it during a small brawl with some baddies. The missing children plot is still strong, with the leading trio helping Tavish to find his brother who’s been missing in the forest. This issue has even more character development and likeable things that adds human emotions to the characters. The humor at the Blake Alternate School with children was genuinely funny with the faces of Will and the other teacher given exact human characteristics by David Whalen.
The follow up issue of 27 pages is as satisfying as the first one and improves it in many aspects. This issue is highly recommended along with the first one to have a great entertaining and creepy read in an affordable price. There are many more sequels available right now too, which you can check out using the links given below the sample pages and biographies.
